The Hudson Library & Historical Society will host a live virtual streaming event with Hugo Award-winning science fiction author John Scalzi on June 24 at 7 p.m. Scalzi will discuss his latest book, The Last Emperox, the thrilling conclusion to the award-winning, New York Times and USA Today bestselling epic space opera adventure series. Kirkus Reviews calls the book “punchy, plausible, and bittersweet; studded with zingers until the very last line.”
